There's a Chinese Restaurant you must go to whenever you stay in the ORTIGAS area. That being MARCO POLO'S LUNG HIN.
Located on the 44th Floor, LUNG HIN has been in my foodie radar ever since it opened around a year ago. Foodies raved about the food. I never found myself going until now.
I didn't know what to order so I asked the staff to order for me. HE then suggested these items:
BAKED Barbecue Pork Bun (220Php). It looks all too familiar. Similar to other Chinese Restaurants but there is something that sets it apart.
STEAMED SHRIMP DUMPLING with GOLD LEAF (220Php). I think the gold leaf was just placed there for special effect. It didn't have any flavor but let me tell you this though, these babies were huge. Compared to other HAKAW, these were plump. Real shrimps were used and there were no extenders. Each bite screams shriiiimp!
It wasn't too oily nor was it too rich. The coating was sticky rice with meat inside. It was a blend of sweet and savory. I like this one!
I actually can't describe the taste. Naturally, the filling is made of black sesame. It wasn't too sweet though but after one bite my dinner mate stole the rest. Apparently, she liked it pretty much.
